So Here Is The New Anti Drunk Driving PSA Going Around Britain

Gizmodo: Sometimes the best way to drive a point home is pure, abject terror. And that’s the approach Leo Burnett London used in this ad that shows a rather extreme way to discourage drinking and driving. Unsuspecting bathroom patrons at a British pub were shocked to see the face of a woman come smashing through the mirror—complete with blood—as if she’d just gone through the windshield of a car on the other side of the wall. In reality it was just a mannequin, and the victims of this PSA were most likely actors, but the effect is no less unsettling. To the point where I’m pretty sure I’d never leave my house again had I experienced this. Mission accomplished.

 

Here’s the problem if they tried to catch me with this shit–I usually don’t break the seal until I’m 5 or 6 beers deep anyway. They pull this stunt with me at that point and I’ll punch the mannequin in the face from being scared or not even be able to acknowledge what’s going on. Sad I know, but that’s my reality. I know I don’t speak for everyone, but after being scared shitless from a head coming through the mirror at you, I would think the first thing people would need is a drink after leaving the bathroom, no? Kinda counter productive if you ask me.

This Is Exactly Why I Don’t Go To The Movies [NSFWish]

HuffPost – Texting in the theater is a pet peeve of many, but a new PSA created for Film4 Frightfest 2012 in London, takes the message to stop texting and turn off your phone to a whole other disturbing level. Written and directed by Can Evrenol — the filmmaker who won the Most Disturbing Short Film at the 2010 HP Lovecraft Festival in Poland — comes a PSA that could shock even the most ardent horror fan. It’s available for viewing above, but viewer discretion is advised.

 

Reasons why I don’t go to the movies: 1) $14 is just not worth it for me when I can see the movie a couple months later on Netflix. 2) People talking/narrating the movie as if they are watching it in their living room. 3) Having the guy behind me stab me in the back of the neck and fuck the hole until he shoots.
